Cosmetic Dermatologist introduces new acne scar treatments!!
(press release from Dr. Jeffrey Rapaport)
Dr. Jeffrey Rapaport a cosmetic dermatologist in NJ www.cosmeticskin.com
uses multiple treatments on each patient to successfully treat acne scars.
His "Multi-Lift Technique" exemplifies how important it is to treat each scar
not with just one method but with with different modalities. This ensures an
individualized approach to treatment with each patient for optimal success.
Subcision is a technique in which a depressed acne scar is lifted to the skin
surface with a surgical instrument such as a tiny scalpel or needle. The deep
portions of the scar are released and the surface elevates with the wound repair
process. Several treatments are usually necessary and are performed under local
anesthesia to eliminate discomfort. Good for most kinds of scars……..
TCA CROSS TCA CROSS (chemical reconstruction of skin scars) is a method in which
trichloracetic acid is used to spot treat each scar. During the treatment, a
high concentration of Trichlorocetic acid is introduced just inside the scar.
The resurfacing response that occurs inside the depression stimulates collagen
production which eventually causes the scar to rise up and close in on itself.
Fillers (Restylane® & Silicone) Restylane® is the world’s most popular filling
agent. It is a clear, synthetic gel made with hyaluronic acid, a natural
substance that is found throughout your body and carries little risk of allergic
reaction. With its unique ability to combine with water, Restylane® remains in
your skin for many months and can be used immediately.
Silicone is another filler commonly used on acne scars. It produces a permanent
change in the skin. Both Restylane® and silicone are injected into acne scars to
raise the surface of the skin and give a smoother look. Good for deeper scars.
Scar Excision: This surgical method of treatment uses a scapel or punch to
remove the scar. Under local anesthesia, the scar is excised and the skin edges
are then sutured together. Excision is typically recommended to patients with
deep pitted scars that are not amendable to the TCA CROSS technique. Good for
deeper scars. Longer recovery time
Laser Skin Resurfacing: Using the Erbium YAG or CO2 laser, the skin is removed
layer by layer which eliminates the scar’s surface. Simultaneously, heat
produced from the laser tightens the skin, which helps to smooth out the scars.
This method has a significant recovery time and is used less frequently since
the advent of the Fraxel™ laser. Good for shallow imperfections rather than "ice
Chemical Peels Chemical peels are generally used to treat patients with very
mild scarring. Different types of acid are applied to the skin in order to
remove the top layer so that a smoother layer can surface. Chemical peels don’t
produce great results for patients who have severe scarring. Good for only mild
